# What is Inductive bias?

Bias in a neural network is an additional neuron to be fired i.e let $$y=a+bx$$ where $$a$$ is a bias term.

Do we have any difference between bias and inductive bias?

How Inductive bias is helpful in generalizing?

Any Kind of reference is helpful.

Bias in statistics (and machine learning) is the difference between an estimated value and the true value. ie $$\text{bias} = \hat{y}_{\text{estimated}} - y_{\text{true}}$$.
